UNIQUE VERSATILITY


The unique design of a new school in East Sussex has highlighted the versatility of Heckmondwike carpet tiles.


Designed to promote flexible learning, the school’s layout features various large open plan ‘pods’ which surround a central space. Each 245m2 pod houses 90 students, plus five or six teachers. All the floor areas need to accommodate many different activities and this prompted the specification of 4,200m2 of Heckmondwikes Supacord


tiles, in six different colours.


Additional reasons behind choosing Heckmondwike included the tiles’ ability to accommodate large open spaces, their hard-wearing performance, acoustic damping characteristics, the ability to be cut to any shape without unravelling, and their antistatic properties which were particularly important for the areas which feature IT equipment.

Retailers can find out about sustainable disposal alternatives for post-consumer and clean installation carpet waste from Carpet Recycling UK (CRUK) at the 2012 Buying Groups’ National Flooring Show this month.


With more than 30 specialist recyclers in the UK processing carpet waste for new uses, opportunities for clean installation waste take back schemes are expanding and offer many advantages for retailers, such as improved customer service and reduced waste collections.


“Other benefits include enhancing your environmental credentials as you help to divert carpet and underlay waste from landfill, which will differentiate your business from competitors. As consumers generally


want to see their waste carpet put to a better use, this is an added positive selling point,” explained CRUK Co-ordinator, Jane Gardner.


Working across the supply chain, CRUK is diverting more of the UK’s annual 400,000 tonnes of carpet waste from landfill. Its target is 25% diversion from landfill by 2015; the rate increased from 10% in 2010 to 16.5% in 2011.
